I’m Sandra Dye and your Life Mentor

SandraHeadFingerRedJacket12-300x265I have worked with thousands of people caught in the frustration and exhaustion of lives that are in disarray and aren’t working.  When I started out in this work, I relied on all the best theories to help people.  While I had success with these proven methods, I kept getting requests like,” just tell me what to do”.

Well as you may know, therapy is designed to help people find their own answers.   I realized something was missing in all the theories.  Without a template to follow, people were left floating around and it was often challenging to get grounded and start implementing solutions.  What I have found is that when people have systems that provide a template, they are much better able to find their own answers because all the pieces of the puzzle have a framework within which to work.

When people are left to swim around in the muck of telling their stories of what isn’t working the repeated retelling, instead of providing any real change, just intensified much of the difficulty and frustration that kept the problems going.

My work provides the clothesline to sort the emotional laundry and a place to hang new information.  I give people systems to follow for resolving conflicts.  Not a list of tips, but real tangible systems.  These systems can be used with any decision making situation.  The system helps to keep out of the muck of conflict, resentments, defensiveness, resistance and blame.

After success with thousands of children, teens and couples, I decided to take what I’d learned and am still learning and share it with others.  I am starting with Sandra Dye Brentwood Therapist to provide my readers with resources, tools and articles to help get them moving in the right direction focused on solutions that work.

Tonia Capitulo, Livermore, CAI wish I had heard about this system long ago because it would’ve helped me with raising my now 15-yr old daughter. I have tried and seen for myself how much easier it is to use the 5 steps in disciplining/teaching all of my kids including my boys ages 5 and 2 than the way I was raised.

Don’t get me wrong, it takes work to change your way of thinking!  But once you do, and learn how to utilize the 5 steps, you’ll see nothing but positive results as I’ve seen with my own experiences!  No screaming, spanking or stressing! I’m all for avoiding all three!
